Sunderland 2-1 West Ham Highlights
A late goal from Andy Reid saw Sunderland pull further clear of the drop zone with victory over West Ham.
Sunderland fell behind when Carlton Cole found Freddie Ljungberg whose deflected shot went in. But the goal fired up the home side and Kenwyne Jones soon equalised, slotting in Daryl Murphy’s flick-on. Sunderland kept the upper hand with Murphy blazing the ball over before Reid buried the ball in the dying minutes of the match. Sunderland had the bit between their teeth right from the off and Michael Chopra came close after four minutes when he skidded the ball across the face of the goal. West Ham gradually made their presence felt and Dean Ashton came very close to scoring five minutes later.
